One of the most amazing natural beauties I have ever seen, from both above by helicopter and at ground level, walking from the LIvingstone statue, through the rain forest to the open area, where you do get very wet!!!

This must be one of the most amazing places in the world! The thunder of the falls can be heard from a distance and the mist created by the falling water encompasses everything and everyone in the surrounding area. The mist appears to be smoke from a distance, thus the falls were named "mosi-oa-tunya" - "the smoke that thunders". As... More

The victoria falls are stunning. You can walk over the bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe and view the falls from both sides. We liked the Zambian side most. If you are staying at one of the main hotels on the river in Zambia, then you entrance into the Falls nature reserve is free. There are many foot paths to walk... More

One of earth's marvels. Absolutely fabulous and beautiful. Really enjoyed the rainbows that popped up here and there. Baboons added to the fun of the lovely tree-shaded, sun-dappled walk along the falls.

Victoria Falls is as spectacular as it is reputed to be!! Seeing the huge amounts of water pouring over the falls is amazing - I could stand for hours watching! There are many sections of the falls to see, though you can get very wet from the spray. We went twice - early in the morning and in the early... More

Very enjoyable visit to the Falls. Afternoon visits are best for rainbows. Full waterproof clothing and shoes are recommended it all the viewpoints are visited. This depends on wind direction, viewpoints 1 to 16 (above 7 become increasingly wet - the spray goes up as well as down, 14 & 15 a bit like a car wash!), but a great... More

Zimbabwe is expensive since all is now charged in US. $ -it really feels strange to pay $20 for the entrance but one can pay in Rand( 250) . There are different prices for visitors from Zim, SADEC countries and other countries. It is worthwhile to hire a raincoat at the entrance otherwise you will get totally wet when trying... More
